U of Texas - Austin / Re: Employment after graduation

20 Hours of work per week.  It doesn't apply during the summer break, and I hadn't though to wonder about the winter break till now, but I can't imagine anyone making a stink about it, since you shouldn't have anything to study during that time anyway.

The ABA rule (I think it's rule 4.03) about working hours for law students is as follows (I used to work in the Payroll Office at Syracuse Law during my undergrad days): If school is in session and you are a full time student you may not work more than 20 hours during any pay period. If school is on break such as a summer, winter break and even spring break you are free to turn in as many hours as you want or that your office will allow you to.

hmmm.  according to random-website-with-weather-information, Austin averages in the low 80's (which is WAY better than Houston - exponential growth of uncomfortableness regarding humidty and all that)

So far since I've been here the humidity has been nothiing like places that regularly top 90%. The dry heat is actually pretty nice.

U of Texas - Austin / Doggy Day Care?

Any of you native Austonians know of a good, clean, professional Doggy Day Care near the University? I'm anticipating some very long days once school starts and I'd love to know of a place ahead of time for the pup if both my fiance and I have uber long days on the same day.  Thanks!

yeah but high heat in NY and down is usually coupled with 80-100% humidity, which is the real killer.

100% correct... up there it's not the heat but the humidity and it's not the cold but the windchill (frequently 20 below) that get you. Every person I've met since I've moved here has asked me, "How are you taking this heat?". Really, it doesn't seem that different from the North because of the difference in humidity.

Hey Jess.  Nice to see more UT people on here.  Are you in Houston?  Some of us are meeting later.

I'm in Austin already. I made the three day trek from hell down from Central NY at the beginning of June with the fiance, dog and all of our wordly possessions in one car and a very small Uhaul trailer. 30+ hours of driving mostly in traffic, high heat and a constantly barking terrier is great fun... really.

I don't think the transcript receipt gets reflected on freshlaw.  I sent mine in a while back - I think they just need it on file to prove that you have an undergraduate degree.

I'm pretty sure they won't bereflected on Freshlaw. But, you can call the Graduate and International Admissions Center to confirm that it has been received. I think they might be a little slow though... Syracuse sent mine out almost two weeks ago and Texas doesn't have a record of it yet. The phone number to call and confirm is: (512) 475-7391.

Other things to add might be:
Buy books
Figure out UT shuttle (if you weren't an undergrad here, I know I need to check out the shuttle)
Parking Pass

If you are moving a long distance with a pet you might want to consider having your pet sedated for the trip. It will ease their stress, keep them from barking/meowing and make for a generally easier move for all involved. Go to your vet's office and ask them about it. Our vet prescribed: 5 mg Acepromazine for our small dog. The prescription for enough tablets to last a four day trip was less than $10. It's perfectly safe for your pet and our dog had no adverse side effects.  He was not unconscious during the 2,000 mile trip but was very quiet and sleepy. Just be sure that the dog is in a calm state when you give him the pill otherwise it doesn't work.
